Red, White and Blue Pasta Salad

Tops Exclusive

Yield: 8 servings

Preparation Time: 20 min; Cook Time: 7 min



Cook pasta according to package directions. Rinse under cold water.

Divide pasta into two equal portions and put each portion into a separate gallon sized ziplock bag.

Add 40 drops red food coloring to the first bag, seal the bag, and squish pasta around until color is evenly distributed. Rinse red pasta in a colander under cold water until water runs clear. Dry pasta with paper towels.

Repeat the dying process with the second bag of pasta, only using 40 drops blue food coloring.

In a large bowl, combine red pasta, blue pasta, mozzarella cheese, pepperoni, artichoke hearts, olives, garbanzo beans, red onion, and red bell pepper. Add 1/2 bottle of Bernstein's Cheese & Garlic Italian dressing and gently toss to coat. Add salt and pepper to taste.

Salad may be made up to two days ahead of time. Store tightly covered in the refrigerator. Add more dressing on the day of serving if the salad dries out too much.

Please note that some ingredients and brands may not be available in every store.
